Foreboding clouds hang heavily overhead, and yet the air is still.

The ship has been becalmed for almost five days now, the black sky obscuring the stars and threatening a storm that has yet to come.

The crew is growing restless, which isn't good even on a disciplined military vessel, but this is not that. This is a pirate ship.

Who are you?

A. Cabin Boy. A lad that the captain took a fancy to, looking for adventure.

B. Cabin Boy (Female). You're pretending to be a lad to escape an oppressive home life. The captain took a fancy to you.

C. Captive (Male). Youngest son of a wealthy family, you were kidnapped by the crew. The captain intends to ransom you back to your father, a Naval officer.

D. Captive (Female). Oldest daughter of a wealthy family, you were kidnapped by the crew for ransom back to your father, a powerful merchant.

E. Stowaway (Male). You snuck aboard the ship to avoid the life of a homeless petty thief. You've probably kept your presence a secret.

F. Stowaway (Female). You snuck aboard the ship to avoid the life of a homeless beggar. You've probably kept your presence mostly secret.

G. Crewmate (Male). You signed on for a life of freedom aboard a pirate ship! Before that, you were a bank clerk.

H. Crewmate (Female). You signed on for a life of freedom aboard a pirate ship! Before that, you were a seamstress's apprentice.

You are a crewmate! You signed up for a life of adventure instead of the boring life of a seamstress.

You've only been at sea for a little over a month. Of course, so far, things have been fairly calm.

Other than keeping things clean and sorted, there hasn't been a whole lot to do, so you've been spending your time ...

A. With the Captain. A powerful, confident figure, you've been trying to attract the captain's notice, although so far you haven't been particularly successful.

B. The Chef/Quartermaster. Some would say he's even more important than the captain! He keeps track of all the stock and supplies, doles out the earnings, and cooks. You figured earning brownie points would benefit you in your new career.

C. The Carpenter/Surgeon. Originally a captive, the carpenter/surgeon has stayed on. It seemed a good idea to learn more about this older and dignified personage.

D. The Prisoner. The mysterious person kept chained up in the hold, you aren't really supposed to be spending any time whatsoever around them, but you can't help yourself. They'd already there, chained up among the crates and boxes, when you were hired on. You just had to learn more.

E. Nobody in Particular. You've never thought standing out was a good thing. You've mostly familiarized yourself with the ship itself and otherwise kept your head down.

Booksey, the carpenter, is one of the essential members of the crew. He's even got himself private quarters.

It's not that you want to dodge work to sit around and listen to him tell stories, it's that you want to be like him. Essential. Skilled. Irreplaceable.

"Bee, no chores today?" he says, always calm, perhaps a bit tired. You aren't sure exactly why he's always called you 'bee,' but you don't honestly mind.

"Done 'em already," you say, which is mostly true, although if the first mate catches you laying about, you're sure there's more you'd get roped into doing.

Booksey's got a little book he's reading from, and he keeps glancing down from time to time as you sit on his toolchest across the little table from him.

You've gotten pretty close with him during your time on the ship. You figure you could ask him something personal at this point.

Ask about a crewmate. You could probably get him to talk about another crewmate and he'd give you his honest thoughts. You'd need to specify who.

Ask him about the weather. Does he think it's gonna break soon? What does he think is going to happen?

Ask him about what he's reading. No reason to get all serious.

Ask him about something else. Whatever else you think you'd like to know.

Booksey, why haven't we just broken oars out and started rowing?

Something on your mind? You seem a bit more distracted than normal? Or are you finally coming to realize just how attractive I am after all ;)

Ask about the captain.

I feel there's no risk of mutiny right now since there's nothing anyone can do about the lack of wind, and there's noone to blame either...

"Well for starters, I want to learn the basics of repairing. If I find a leak during combat, I don't want to run up and down the ship to find you while the cannonballs are flying."

"So you're a carpenter? Name every carp."
